Review: Amazing Race Bangkok Feb 16 2022

The Smallest Amazing Race Ever?

It was certainly the smallest race I’ve ever done. Eight people. Two teams of four. That was it.

We made it work though and, despite the small group size, the energy levels were high and all participants were committed and determined to win. I was warned beforehand that they were a competitive bunch and they certainly were – especially the Director of Sales!

The group consisted of senior leaders from one of Bangkok’s leading hotels. You’ve got to be competitive when you’re running one of Asia’s best hotels.

This indomitable spirit was on display throughout the morning and after 2.5 hours competing in some of our signature team building challenges around Bangkok, teams returned to the hotel for an insightful discussion about the need for creativity and innovation in the modern business world – something our Amazing Race focuses on. With such small groups, debriefs are more meaningful as each person can have their say.

A fabulous lunch next to the Chao Phraya river ended what was a lovely morning. Still in the midst of Covid-19, this was yet another socially-distanced team building adventure. I think we were all breathing a little harder than normal what with all the running around in N95 masks.
